Foxconn denies strike reports at China factory


Smartphone manufacturer, Foxconn has recently denied reports that roughly 3,000 to 4,000 workers at one of their factories have gone on strike in Zhengzhou, China. The Foxconn Technology Group Spokesperson had released a statement to deny speculation that their workers were on strike.

The statement said, “We can confirm that there were two disputes between a small group of production line workers and Quality Assurance (QA) personnel at our manufacturing facility in Zhengzhou, China on October 1 and 2 but these were isolated incidents and were immediately addressed and measures taken, including providing additional staff for the lines in question, to address the issues raised by both production workers and QA personnel. This is consistent with our efforts to work with our employees to continuously enhance any aspects of our production that can improve the workplace and manufacturing practices.” The statement added that there has been no stoppage of work in that facility or any other Foxconn facility.
